Tomato-Cucumber Mozzarella Salad

I used fresh mozzarella for the first time last year and loved it. I wanted to incorporate it into as many dishes as possible and came up with this tomato cucumber basil salad. It has quickly become a mainstay at my house. —Jennifer Klann, Corbett, Oregon

    I used grape tomatoes instead because it was quicker to cut up. I omitted the olives just to make it more like a caprese salad. I will try sometime with the greek olives. Excellent salad. Dinner friends loved it!

    Delicious salad. I use cherry or grape tomatoes as they are easier to cut up. Will make this often!

    This was wonderful, I used fresh produce from the garden and we cleaned the bowel out at supper. Big hit! Will definitely make it again!

    Omitted the olives and used red instead of green pepper (added sweetness). A delicious salad caprese in a bowl with the added crunch of cucumber!
